Although I am not aware of any connection between our Harvey families, I thought I would add to what Tim has already provided.
The information on Isaac and Mary comes from the GRO index, which is free to search. To get the actual dates and place of birth you would have to order the certificates. The index only lists the quarter and registration district in which the birth was registered.
Charles was baptized on May 6, 1810 in Shebbear. Children were typically baptized in the parish church of their town, but that is not always the case. Now that you know the name of his parents, and possible siblings, you might build out your tree to see if his parents and/or siblings are still living in the 1851 census to see if that provides further clues on his place of birth.
I have a Findmypast subscription and would be happy to look up any specific parish records you may need. Just send me an email. You can find my email address in the member's area if you search for people researching the Harvey name.
